Ada was Helen Keller for wax museum day. Parents would come by and touch her thumb to hear her story.
As you can probably tell, Ada wasn’t the loudest one in the room! But she did very well and many parents did get to learn something about Helen.
The photo above has King Tut in the foreground, although it looks like it might be Joseph Merrick.
Helena had her first band concert at the high school, but playing with the 7th and 8th grade Lake Harriet Orchestra.
We’ll remember it as the night when she locked my keys in my car, though. She had walked out of the car without the clarinet, so she asked for my keys. I waited by the school door for her. When she walked in she said, “Do you have your spare key?”
